Dear Listserv Members,

At a time when we face global challenges, international engagement is more important than ever, and many countries are actively seeking experts in Business, Economies and Entrepreneurship. The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers opportunities for scholars, professionals (including MBAs), and postdocs to advance their research and teaching interests, promote mutual understanding, and collaborate with scholars abroad. The program is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year through September 15, 2020.

For some awards, countries are specifically seeking experts in your field. For example, Spain is looking for applicants who can teach/research Economics or Business at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Turkey wants experts to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in Business Administration and Economics, and Bahrain is seeking applicants with experience in public-private partnerships and developing relationships between government agencies and private industry.

We have opportunities to match your goals and availability. There are over 450 awards available in more than 125 countries and many are open to all disciplines. The complete list of opportunities is located in the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Catalog of Awards. Opportunities range from 2 to 12 months in length and include flexible options for multiple shorter visits to many host countries. While Fulbright is always supportive of scholars bringing family members to share their Fulbright experience, some awards provide dependent support to help scholars off-set the additional expense.

Becoming a Fulbright Scholar is an experience and honor that will serve you throughout your career. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or join our weekly office hours. We would welcome the opportunity to explain the program further and work with you on your application.
